But it was in the Middle East that people suffered the consequences of the Islamic State the most. There is no question that the removal of Baghdadi was always seen as a key component of the continued effort to diminish the impact and influence of the Islamic State.

They point out that it can leave doctors a lot of room for interpretation. Defenders of the use of brain- death criteria retort that such problems But the fundamental challenges to the definition are about whether the brain should be the key component of death . Often this is down to religious belief.

He was the man who inspired terrorist attacks around the world, encouraged horrific beheadings in Iraq and Syria and created a cultish medieval-type "caliphate".

Abu Bakr al Baghdadi did not have the charisma or status of other terrorist leaders like Osama bin Laden, but the impact of the terror franchise he created was felt around the world.

Islamic State's leader is dead but the terror group 'is expanding'

  Islamic State's leader is dead but the terror group 'is expanding' The threat from Islamic State is not finished, despite the death of its leader in a US military operation. That was the warning from experts after US President Donald Trump confirmed the death of Abu Bakr al Baghdadi on Sunday in Syria.Chris Costa, a former senior director for counter-terrorism for the National Security Council in the Trump administration, said: "The bottom line is: This puts the enemy on its heels, but the ideology - and this sounds so cliched - it is not dead.

The death of Baghdadi is an important moment in our fight against terror but the battle against the evil of Daesh is not yet over. We will work with our coalition partners to bring an end He says that it was dangerous for the US to fly over other people’ s territory, but they had cooperation from other countries.

His followers drove trucks through European Christmas markets and down seaside promenades.

But it was in the Middle East that people suffered the consequences of the Islamic State the most.

The consequence of the caliphate he created in northeastern Syria and northern Iraq was misery and terror for anyone who did not pledge allegiance to his warped Islamist agenda.

Donald Trump will, naturally, frame Baghdadi's death as a huge moment in the fight against the Islamic State - a fight he has already declared "won" several times.

From the huge caliphate it boasted just a few years ago, IS territory has gone and its de facto capitals, Raqqa in Syria and Mosul in Iraq, have been liberated.

But many of the group's followers - tens of thousands of fighters and their families - remain in ramshackle, makeshift Kurdish-run prisons in northeastern Syria.

In only his second ever video appearance, broadcast earlier this year, the terror leader boasted of his group expanding to Africa and parts of Asia.

Baghdadi's death is a key moment in the fight to dismantle the Islamic State, but it's not the end.
